the latest beta is completely stable and could very well be called a final release..
i probably would have called it final if i had known it would be so long before doing more updates.

here is my plan wrt coding:
my first responsibility is to finish the new Cheat Sheeter app, and get some sample stylesheets and help packs available so that other authors can see how to make new sheet packs for it.
after that i will work on major improvements to Find&Run Robot and Process Tamer.
the additions to Process Tamer are less open ended than those that will be made to F&R; mainly a new taming algorithm as described in this section and some minor improvements.
Haven't decided yet which one to do first.

Hi Mouser,

The ability to alter the delay for the display of balloon tips would also be rather welcome in the official release.  ;)

do you want to make the baloon appear for shorter or longer time?
unfortunatelly windows wont let me show them much (any?) shorter.. but if you want them to stay on screen longer, that i can do.

Shorter would be nice.  I understand that there are Windows limitations for the minimum time balloon tips are displayed for, but I think the minimum display time is around 10 seconds and the process tamer tips seem to stay forever (30 seconds plus?).

I find the info given by the balloon tips is really useful to know what is going on, but on the other hand I hate having to dismiss pop-ups that are sitting on top of the app I'm using.  I guess you just can't please some people. ;)
